Which ITR form for me?

I have an income from pension and interest on savings accounts till now so I was using ITR1. Now during the last FY, that is AY 2015-16 I had sold an agriculture land which was bought by me in 2006. However, taking into consideration indexation, I have not earned any profit. But still as I have to reflect the transaction in the IT return, I need an advice as to which form I should use, ITR-2 or ITR-2A for filing the return for AY 2015-16.
Thanks in advance more

Bhargava Ji, Since you are earning Retainer fee under the head "Profits and Gains of Business & Profession" ITR-4 will be applicable to you. more  
May I request Mr Dutt to kindly advise which ITR form would be applicable to me. I am 79 year old pensioner with income from Pension, rent from a building, retainer fee, FDs, saving a/c . For the past 2-3 years I had been filling ITR-4. Request is due to changes in forms. more  
good advise by MR. RAGHONADH DUTT more  
Thanks for a valuable advice Mr. Dutt. more  
Use I.T.R 2 only. But if the agricultural lands are in rural area i.e. 3 K.Ms from small Municipalities and 5-8 KMs from big Municipality limits, then they are called rural Agricultural lands on which the capital gain tax is totally tax free as they are exempt from tax. more
